This picture was taken when I went vacationing in (where the hell are flamingos from?)... and who came up with the word flamingo... it's so neat!

Pretty aren't they, much more than their plastic counterparts.

I was just thinking that I am growing up. I can't believe it.

I still don't feel grown up, is that normal? I thought with this kiddo's arrival that I would somehow get omnipotent, but that's still evading me.

I don't know how these creatures find it comfortable to stand on one leg.

(H-town friends/family, and those elsewhere in TX/LA, please please please stay safe. You are in my prayers!)

So far I am happy about all the life changing things that have happened.
***Everyone is healthy and safe, (minus me and the hubs getting pretty sick once this month)...
***The little one sleeps through the night (thank god, really!)
***Getting school work done, and the reading isn't too out of control. Met some new friends in school this semester and had some funny stories about their kids.
***With the hubs working 12 hour shifts, I don't get to see him as often, because when he is home, he is usually sleeping, and I am off at school or studying. So that is the part that is hard... I hope he doesn't miss a lot of the baby's milestones. I think I would go crazy if I didn't see her smile everyday...

I know there are a lot of things in my world that are going on that are horrible and have been discussed at length on the internet and other blogs, what I know is that I am very blessed by all that I have. Good family, friends, and a great life.

unBEARably Cute

She is so cute, isn't she? The outfit is from my cousins down in Littleton, CO! Thanks Lakshmi and Malini!


Something is wrong with uploading pictures on here and shivani's site.


so sorry, no cute pics today.

Sick again with allergies, so trying to alleviate it with Benadryl. Lots of reading, and I did ok on my first Pathophysiology test.

Gotta get to bed, I will try to upload the totally cutest pictures again tomorrow!

Shivani's site

It's up and running. Go and check it out! It's on the right (under Blogs I read), called My Life and Times. Enjoy!

More and more pictures of her will be there, and while I will still talk about her here, I might not post as many pictures here. We'll see. You will just have to keep checking!

Who's your GrandDaddy?

Grandpa feeding the little PRINCESS.

Hubby with Shivani, saying her name 3 times in her ear. This is usually done on the 28th day to "name" the child. Hubby is wearing a mundu (not sure of the spelling), it's what men wear in Kerala on special occasions such as this and Onam.

Grandpa and grandbaby getting to know each other!

Sicker than a dog!

oh man... I haven't been this sick since 6th grade... I think it's a stomach virus... I wasn't able to even get up much except to yak... fever hasn't left... Just keep praying that Shivani doesn't get sick. Hubby, I think, had this about a week ago... so THANKS A LOT HUBS!!!

Better go back and crawl under the sheets. Feeling ice cold again.
